years, george h.w. b bush, 14 years. these are people who became to president it makes you wonder, what is in there? >> colby? >> 57% of the american people want him to releashis tax returns. you have republicans who want him to release hisax returns. i was thinking this was a non- issue until i heard george will say this makes you wonder if he has something to hide. >> roger? >> this is a loser of anan issue for george romney. >> mitt romneney. george is the father. >>itt romney, sorry. democratic surrogates are going around and saying that one man has seen romney's tax returns. it was john mccain, when he was a vetting him for vice president. the first thing mcca did was say, "taiwan sarahalin instead." -- i want sarah palin instead." why not t just do it? why not just tell us what was in the cayman islands, the swiss bank accounts? romney separatesimlf from the massive average american people by doing this. >> first of all, cain said that he look at them and his answswer was not to go for sarah palin. his answer was, "i look in them there was nothing in them." ther he is lying and yo
have done in the past, as well. like when former president george w. bush spoke at virginia tech university, just one day after 32 people were killed in a mass shooting on their campus in virginia. >> today i'd like to assure you a parent's love is never far from their child's heart. and as you draw closer to your own families in the coming days, i ask you to reach out to those who ache for sons and daughters who will never come home. >> reporter: so, when a particular part of the country is hurting the american public aren't the only ones paying attention. presidents do take note as well and, presidents do their best to help people heal but, jamie, the people of aurora, colorado are a long way away from being back to normal. >> jamie: probably settling in as well. it is terrible. thank you so much, peter. >> eric: a "fox news alert" now, this has to do with syria. where there is continued heavy fighting, reported in two of its largest cities. this as rebel forces battle government troops. there is ongoing fighting reported in the streets of the capital, damascus and it puts pres
of nevada and financial hurdles facing voters there. former deputy assistant to george w. bush and chris former chief of staff to senator joe manchon. i'm going to start with you, chris. president obama is going to attending a convention in reno. as we know nevada's economy is depressed. high foreclosures. what can the president say to gain support there? >> i think the president needs to make the argument why he has a better vision than governor romney. with the economic policies, social policies, in this case the veterans issues. he has done a lot of in terms of veterans and focusing on veterans during his precedency. nevada has been a tough hit state economically. high foreclosures, he is going to address that, but i think one of key distinctions between the two candidates, which one better understands you. look at all the polls. the poll that stands out again and again. again, if you look at the polls, one that stands out again and again. that is huge advantage for the president. >> arthel: people want to be understood, they want their problems to be understood but they want results.
by the word choice, what he says or also by his body language? no one can forget president george w. bush 9/11 when he was in front of the classroom and you could see the demeanor of the president once we learned that information that he received the demeanor of him. that was as indelible as any word could have been. >> there is no dou the pictures here, the television matters. the sense of empathy that a president is able to convey by what he says and how he acts these are important things. i think going forward it becomes more important in terms of how he shows that he is a healer for the country. this is especially difficult now that we are in the middle of a very contentious political season where the president and candidate romney are not being very much healers. they are going at it and fighting pretty hard a moment like this makes that kind of politicking that much more discorted. >> very appreciated. >>> a lot of us are counting down to the olympic games. the opening ceremony is friday. the summer games are challenging athletes. it is also coinciding with the muslim holy month. it m

's bullet proof vest. they finally did but only after years of fighting over this issue. george w. bush overturned the ban on assault weapons. obama has to reinstate that ban, get rid of the high capacity magazine. we're turning into a gun happy, gun crazy country and i'm more concerned that their motto is don't tread on me. well, my motto is don't tread on the american people anymore. host: that was not oscar, that was jennifer, thank you very much for the call from new york city. jermaine has this point,: the denver post has punished some -- published some of the most horrific shootings in history, leading the list is suspect james egan holmes, who shot 71 people, killing 12. in the virginia tech shooting, # two were killed, 27 wounded, in 1966, charles whitman, 47 people shot, 16 were killed, 31 wounded, killeen, texas, 45 people were shot at luby's cafeteria, 23 fatally shot, at mcdonald's in san ysidro, california, 40 people shot, 19 wounded, and at columbine high school in littleton, colorado, 39 people were shot, 13 died, 26 wounded, the list is available at denver post.com. than
in many ways by things you can't control. george w. bush couldn't control september heaven that -- seventh, that fundamentally reshaped his presidency one year into it. things happen that i think -- these things, like the tragedy in colorado, they happen within a political context, and i think politicians have to react to that. you saw both barack obama and mitt romney come out and speak on friday, barack obama is headed to colorado today. this doesn't mean either of them are politicizing this event. what it means is that at times of national crisis or at times of national tragedy we look for our leaders to be leaders. and they need to step up to that. if they don't step up to it, it can hurt them in the long run. the perception, the impressions that are made in moments like this, when everyone is paying attention, it's a rare time when everyone is kind of paying attention to a single story. when they are, those grengses -- impressionings and perceptions can last -- imetions can last beyond the story. >> and host: there is a pootern other protocol. guest: sadly there is. we've had a number
you try to strike a tone appropriate to the moment. we have seen presidents in the past, george w. bush after 9/11. bill clinton after the oklahoma city bombing do that very effectively and president obama will try to do that again today as he did after gabby giffords was shot more than a year ago. >> i also remember president reagan doing that after the shuttle explosion. these things are indelibly etched into your mind. christina, both the president and mr. romney do have events tomorrow. neither will likely talk gun control any time soon. could or would either candidate bringing it up be possible down the road? >> nothing is impossible. it is unlikely. it is not a debate that these two guys want to have. you have mayor michael bloomberg calling on each of them to resurge on this issue. it is politically difficult for both parties to tackle this. it is something i wouldn't be surprised if congress takes up. there are advocates that have fierce opinions on both sides. even if the debate doesn't change and people feel very entrenched on either side, people want to talk about it. i
